Nutritious Ranking

THE WORLD'S 'Best 50 restaurants' in 2008 have been announced. A brief look reveals offal eatery, St. John [REVIEW], serving up the best scrapings from Smithfield Market, has leapfrogged a staggering 18 places (16), only two places below Restauarant Gordon Ramsay, which has climbed 11 places, no doubt a boost to GRH. Le Gavroche ascends six places (22), fitting for its fourtieth year. The River Café however drops from 44th to 58th position. The Square, which I am so keen to go to takes 67th place. And El Bulli remains top dog. Observer critic Jay Rayner is the U.K. voting panel team member.
